Year 5 Fund Raisers

Kane, Hannah, Keegan and Nathaniel wanted to raise money for a local charity, The Mission, which has supported some of our families in a range of ways. They gave a speech in assembly to present their idea of class copper coin collections in old milk tins. They spent their lunch times counting up the money collected, made a fantastic card to present to the mission with our grand total of £39.60! Thanks to all who hunted down their loose change!

Year 6 Family Learning Day

Children and their families were set the challenge of creating a project board on the artist Yinka Shonibare. They had to research, plan, design and create their boards. They worked in small teams and shared ideas to produce their board. The adults enjoyed their morning and were treated to tea and biscuits at break time with the help of Leah and Lewis.Take a look at some more photographs.

Year 5 Gallery Visit

Year 5 visited Huddersfield Art Gallery today. We explored the works of art and even created some of our own.We looked at the work of Lowry and compared his style to other artists' and explored Gainsborough's technique of creating landscapes in trays using a range of materials. We also focused on light and shadow, using chalk and charcoal to sketch our landscapes from different viewpoints. Finally we experimented with colour when using watercolours. Click here to see some photographs of our visit.
